The Alliance focuses heavily on staff development and community outreach, and HLG members have presented numerous seminars on behalf of the Alliance.

Additionally, Mr. Harbottle served a term on the California Office of Administrative Hearings Advisory Committee, which advises the Office of Administrative Hearings on special education due process and mediation procedures. The Advisory Committee meets twice yearly, and the meetings are webcast permitting opportunities for broad participation among interested groups and individuals.
